Breguet has released some new models in recent years, but there is one model that still comes with traditional features but a more contemporary package, The Breguet Marine Chronograph. All the Classique collection key features are there, the hands, the fluted case, and the guilloche dial available in modern design.
Abraham-Louis Breguet created this marine model back in 1815 after he’s been appointed as the official chronometer maker of the Royal Navy. With amazing historical stuff behind the model, it’s natural that Breguet highlighted its Marine collection in recent years. They also delve this collection into the sportier territory.
This Breguet Marine Chronograph is a high-end sports chronograph. You can see all of 346 parts of this automatic calibre from the caseback. The skeletonised ship’s wheel rotor, the escapement anchor, and the balance spring working beautifully to make a statement look like a sporty chrono.
This watch is powered by Calibre 582QA self-winding automatic movement that features 18 carats oscillating weight. The power reserve is 48 hours, and water resistant up to 100m. This is so nice for the classic sport chrono watches.
The most polarising aspect of the case design is the integrated lugs that add a sports watch from the 70’s vibe. Chronograph pushers that look like a wave are so unique, tell the Marine story with the elegant design. The case is made of white gold, making this watch not only known as sporty chrono but also a luxury timepiece.
The dial also comes with some interesting aspects. Sporty roman numerals lay on the top of deep blue dial that bears a quite lovely wave motif which really elevates the Marine history on it. Three chrono subdials available in different sizes, overlapping hours and minutes case which make it a bit quirky.
If you are looking for a genuine alternative to the mainstream sport chrono watch, Breguet Marine Chronograph is for you. With its classical element and quirky design, this watch is perfect for your vintage outfit or dress.
